A Little Birdie Told Me

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend. I will tell you about our special day after I have told you about the challenge.
It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Sue's turn to choose the theme, and she chose "Circles & Polka dots" - Use something on your creation that is all round fun like buttons, nesties, polka dot papers and round embellishments etc.

As soon as I saw the theme I knew which stamp I wanted to use, I used "I Don't Do Bugs" HMOR1053, I have made a card for my Hubby's Birthday, we have three children, and there is three mice, and also he is planning to build an aviary with the boys, so quite an apt image.
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

We are sponsored by Pizzazz Aplenty who will be giving one lucky winner a pack of embellies worth $10 !
House Mouse designs who will give $25 gift certificate to another lucky entrant !! :-)

The top two players with the most votes will be the prize winners and also asked to be our next GDT'S.

You might want to hop on over to the challenge blog to see all the challenge details.

Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

Now yesterday was my sons presentation day at his Football Club, and this is him with his medal looking very proud. It was lovely, although my son was disappointed he didn't get to play any football LOL! We also took him to Leeds UTD Football ground to get him his first Leeds Kit, we also got his name on the back of his shirt, he's well proud.

Hi Tracy, what a cute stamp! You have colored this little scene up beautifully. Love the wooden button and how you used it with the leaves. What a cute story behind giving it to your hubby for his birthday. Sweet picture of your proud son too. I have ancestral roots in Leeds!!!

I'm very, very late arriving Tracy, I so wanted to get here sooner to see Bobby and his medal. Tell him well done for me and would he consider the Reds ?

A great card as well, beautiful how the leaves curl round the bottom and sentiment.
